Pétanque is a game similar to Boules. It is played in two teams with two or three players in each. If there are three players in a team, each has two boules. If there are two, each has three balls. One player throws the jack, and then throws the first boule from behind a marked line, trying to get it as close to the jack as possible. A player from the other team then takes a throw. From this point onwards, the team who is closest takes the next go, or, if both are equidistant, they continue to play alternately. The winning team receives one point for each boule that it has closer to the jack than the best-placed boule of the opposition. The first team to reach 13 points wins the game. Beginners are welcome, as are those who are simply interested in having a go.
